These days no social event or party is complete without some amount of alcohol being present. While one has often heard of long-term ill effects of alcohol it is important to short-term ones.It is not easy to remain tea totaller due to various social pressures. As individuals, we need to manage harmful effects of alcohol, both short term and long term as well as social life and need for networking for career reasons.    Many of the youngsters are just social drinkers and may have to deal with short-term side effects rather than not having any measures for dealing with those and  as opposed to being counselled without understanding them.

What is a hangover?

Hangovers are caused due to overconsumption of alcohol because of several adverse effects such as dehydration, stomach irritation,drop in blood sugar, bad sleep quality,use of toxic byproducts.

Symptoms include a headache, nausea, sensitivity to light, and fatigue. 

The best method of prevention is to drink alcohol in moderation or avoid it altogether. 

The most efficient cures are rest, rehydration, and sleep.     

Overcoming Hangovers

Do not take a beer or other alcoholic drinks to get rid of a hangover. Instead of giving relief it will only  prolong hangover symptoms.

Rehydration -  Sip water or fruit juices throughthe day. Water is the best fluid.

Eat - go for bland foods, such as whole wheat crackers or bread, which may raise blood sugar and are easy on the stomach.

Painkillers - some people may take painkillers. However, painkillers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, paracetamol) attack the liver in high concentrations, while aspirin might not be a good candidate for a very delicate stomach.   It’s better to ask a qualified pharmacist than to self-medicate.    

Rest - sleep may aid in speeding up recovery.

Ayurveda to prevent hangovers

One can ensure that before taking the first drink, one takes any Ayurvedic hangover medicine meant to prevent hangovers. These medications typically contain anti-inflammatory agents and liver toners. The mechanism by these Ayurvedic medicines act is by preventing the conversion of alcohol, i.e., ethanol to acetaldehyde.      

Typically when a person drinks alcohol, chemically known as ethanol, it reacts with liver lining and gets converted to acetaldehyde. When the same person drinks excess alcohol, this acetaldehyde gets converted to acetate and enters the bloodstream and causes toxic effects. It causes long-term liver lining corrosion causing liver cirrhosis.   

When one takes these Ayurvedic medicines, one can break the cycle at several steps as ethanol does not get converted to acetaldehyde.It also aids in preventing long-term effects apart from assisting in preventing hangovers.         

One such medicine in the market is Dr Vaidya’s. It is called LIVitup. One can either consult an Ayurvedic practitioner or take one-two pills before the first drink. It is also known to prevent harmful effects of gutka on the liver.
